me and tewsk just thought we might get another truck or 2 for recovery help(you know i need it) but if there are alot of people who show up we could totally make a day out of this. i would be up for going tward twin lake, or was it cedar creek that you mentioned.
I hope you come out. TEWSK told me today that we could meet up at his place around 1 oclock, but he might not make it out now(hes not sure yet) but im going 4 sure.
I can go. It's just that I haven't decided if I wanna piss my wife off or not. That is my only uncertainty.

We can start on Jensen rd, which is sure to be NASTY right about now and migrate from there, prolly by way of Hilton Park Rd.(which may or may not be fun) If the road isn't, the ditches will be. :) As far as legal play areas, there are plenty of places to play that won't get us in trouble with Jonny Law. (unless your rig is not registered and insured, but I don't know anybody that would do something like that) You just can't be scared to "boldly go where only Mud Dogs have gone before" If you have any questions about the meeting location, just ask. Hope to see ya all there.
WE WILL KEEP IT LEGAL!!!!!!

We will not be making it out this time.
Its good to know that there are still trails opened so close to home.

Cool - I think we're going to try and make it. It will only take us about 3 minutes to get there since that is only a mile or 2 from our house!!

well he said that there are some pretty good holes so i would think its 50/50
you can always hit the edges up or just go all the way around things that you
do want to try, but xj's usually do really good

Well I know of one hole that a F150 on 35's got high centered, but you go go around that one. the other areas are ok for your little jeep Jeepster
Although short areas, it may be a good idea to make your way out towards Ceder Creek trails for most the trip.

Ceder Creek trails are cake... There are some nice ruts out there though, I almost lost my jeep last month over there, I somehow got turned around and onto a quad trail and that was a no no. The jeep started sliding towards the creek.. I didnt know whether to gas it or bail.. There was no way i was gonna ride it down that hill, crash and burn..

Beast your so conceded... I don't 2 track much.. i am more of a sand guy, you never know what your gonna find in some trails that your not familiar with or the time of the year, as you know because you had to pull 3 others out of the way just to get me out. To this day btw i think i could have drove out of that if they weren't in my way. They said i can't but then again...

Sounds fun. I would like to go, but still no Fing hook points on the front of my truck so I stay out of the deep stuff.
